Hello,we are planning our trip for February 15 until 26 from New Jersey as our trip will be hard for us with two children.We would love to have anything set up before,Hotel our car places to visit where to eat etc! We think that is agood idea to stay in Athens for 8 days and rest of them in Thessalonikh.Another issue is tham i am very concered about car rental policies can i rent a car from Athens and going to Thessalonikh?Is that possible or it has any limatations?As i remember an old trip that i had to Rhodes i wasn t able to move even for few hours to another Island.

Your usual limitations:

  • one-way fee (collecting in Athens and leaving in Thessaloniki)
  • possible limitation to the daily mileage

That's should be it...

I rented a car in Thessaloniki and drove to Athens without any problems some years ago. Don't think that much has changed in that area, so going the other way should be just fine. Our route was Thessaloniki - Vergina- Meteora - Thermopyle - Delphi - Patra - Korinth - Athens, so not the most straight route.

Be surtain on how many kilometers you're going to drive, and shop around. There were large differences between the companies.

Do remember that sightseeing on the way (absolutely recommended) and driving on local roads parts of the way (also recommended) will drive the distance up.

I know we contacted half a dusin companies, but I no longer remember what company we landed on at the end.

hello did you Find any car rental company that you can take your car from Athens and drop it to Thessaloniki?

Most rental car companies we contacted had departements in both cities, and I think that if you can do it one way, you'll be able to do the reverse.

We went from Thessaloniki to Athens, so that was what we asked for.
